Since spring has arrived, I was setting up my glass top patio table. The plastic insert ring for the umbrella had disentegrated. I knew the umbrella pole rubbing the glass in the wind would eventually crack it. I found a scrap piece of sarvis wood, measured the pole and hole, and turned this insert. It was pretty like it was but to match I sprayed it with black and then spar varnish. I know it was a small, quick project but I think this is the first time I have used my lathe for something practical, other than gifts. I have a few request for these already.
